Midweek Madness: Win one of five HTC swag packs


Update: we’ve got winners! The contest is now closed!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe today is a Wednesday. And Wednesdays suck. To help ease the pain, we’re back with another installment of Midweek Madness. This week, we’ve got five HTC swag packs, each consisting of a tee, a hat and a hang-your-phone-from-the-wall-socket-while-its-charging kinda thing.

Back in June we were invited to the Uplinq conference in San Diego, where we ran into the HTC team while walking the floor. They gave us some prize packs and told us about HTC Dev, and we went on our way. Fast forward to last week, when HTC officially opened their developer program, and you’ve got perfect timing for a giveaway.

Speaking of perfect timing, if you’ve been following our blog for a while you’ll know we’ve been pushing our And Me Accounts as a great (and free) way to stay connected with our Android community. We recently rolled out a point system (and an alpha Perks page for any users past the 100 point mark), but we’ve been promising bigger plans like members-only contests and special awards for our power-users. Today we dip our toes into that water.

To enter to win an HTC prize pack, all you’ve gotta do is leave a comment on this post. The catch is, to leave a comment on this post, you’ll need to have an And Me Account. Like we said, the account is free, and signing up takes probably all of about 20 seconds. For this first round, there is no point restriction; anyone with an And Me Account can play. If you’ve got one, login and leave a comment below. If you need one, register here.

We’ll let the contest run all night and will contact the winners (which will be selected at random) tomorrow morning. As is often the case with trade show swag, all these shirts are the same size, 2XL (the hat is adjustable, though). This contest is open to Android fans worldwide.

Good luck!

PS: If you are a new user, don’t forget to set a user picture! We want to see you!

UPDATE: the contest is over and since we are a bit late with the announcement, we’ve picked 6 winners instead of the original 5. Check your inboxes! And thanks for playing!

  172. I’d like to win some swag. I need a clean shirt.

  173. I would really love to win these things to show of everyone I meet in sweden what cool things You can get from Android and me and HTC.

  174. Hell I do love mid week madness :)

  176. Yes, please i’d like to win those :D

  177. Hey, I have an HTC Desire. Of course I’d love to get that stuff :D

  181. Splendid looking wears, I would most like to place my comment with aspirations of acquirement.

  182. HTC and Swag = android and me

  183. 2XL, hmm, I wish I was fatter :)

  184. Sadly I am not sure if my last comment went through. So sorry if I commented twice but free swag is great. I love HTC!

  185. Ooh….Swag.

    Though, what does it say about the state of your average geek if all the shirts provided are 2XL. Used to be XL was the standard for random shirts (probably L before that)

  186. HTC swag? Awesome! I would love some, please. :)

  187. I’ll bite, even though I’m a G2x user…

  188. In it for the shirt and hat

  189. oooh weee!! Free stuff is always the best!! Let’s go Android and Me!!

  190. I’ve been a member since before I got my Nexus One (ordered first day available). I also read Android and Me daily through the RSS feed (using NewsRoom on said N1). I find that I am participating less in the on-line forums since I do most of my access from the phone.
    When I was a PalmOS guy I participated in the fori more often, mostly, I think, because I had to spend time in front of the big screen with the full keyboard anyway, given the slower access speeds and poorer content (e.g., text only).

  191. Lot’s of comments in this post.

  192. Would love to have one of these packs!

  193. Viva HTC!! I want a T-shirt. Still with my Eris and waiting for the next HTC monster( Vigor) for Verizon

  194. I love me some free stuff!

  195. Love swag, love android and love Google.

  196. I’d like to have the HTC stuff

  197. I Friggin’ love HTC, so just give it all to me.

  198. I would love to win!

  199. Congrats to the winners !
